PCS to seek strike negotiations?

Unions are not happy at facing further pension contributions.

05 August 2011

The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) is going to consult other bodies about demonstrations as a result of proposed pension changes.

Strike negotiations have been taking part intermittently throughout the summer as the government seeks to gain support for its policies.

However, PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka noted there is "no protection against these cuts" and that people will be left to "pay more and work longer for less".

"We will continue to talk to other unions about stepping up industrial action in the autumn," he added.

According to calculations by the PCS, those who earn £16,700 a year will have to contribute an extra £21 a month to their pensions.

This will eliminate the extra £250 workers who are paid less than £21,000 are due to get.

PCS recently made clear its disappointment that 7,000 jobs are to be cut in the Ministry of Defence, which comes after 25,000 redundancies were announced last year.
